Re: rare Dead audio from '60s tv/film apps. (5-3-1968!)
Of course, movies such as PETULIA are owned by major corporations, but can be bought for home use.
Or, they can be rented for practically free, especially if the local library carries them.
And several I listed are already on archive.org from video - all the KQED shows..., etc.
The only one I don't already have in my private collection is that Columbia Revolt movie - It is called THE COLUMBIA REVOLT, and is a b&w 59 minute movie.
I think maybe that's a few seconds of it in the Backstage Pass video, where the Dead are jamming and there's a brother with a cigarette getting down to the sounds.
That did look like some cool footage, and now I discover the Dead were playing Cold Rain & Snow, and Sittin' On Top Of The World...
but very little information about the movie is available that I know of.
I'd gladly rent or buy an authorized commercial release on tape or DVD from the proper source, not a problem!
Alas, it might be long out of print.
Looks like an independent film, made by "The Newsreel", pretty obscure it would seem.
Also, it's in mono, according to imdb.com
Has anyone ever seen it that digs that period of the GD?
